A 62-year-old man held on aggravated assault charges apparently hanged himself early Sunday at a Far South Side police lockup.
It was the second apparent suicide at the facility in four days. A man charged with murdering an Aldi security guard hanged himself in the same lockup Thursday.
Police said the man found Sunday — identified by the Cook County medical examiner’s office as 62-year-old Melvin C. Woods Jr. — was taken into custody shortly after midnight on aggravated assault charges.
Woods was found about 1:20 a.m. hanging in a cell in the Calumet District police station at 727 E. 111th St., police said. He apparently hanged himself with his underwear.
